If the lines going to the heater core, trans cooler were not connected correctly would this cause a bypass around the thermostat?

Bypassed for awhile if the heater is on.  The nipple on the crossover manifold goes to the heaters and valve then to the bottom of the radiator...the other nipples on the timing cover go to the tranny cooler.

See the tips on heater hoses on my website.

I printed the hose routing. I will check and see if they are correct. Thanks!

Nice steering wheel cover! Wish I had one to hide the cracks.

I purchased a very nice leather one on evilbay for my 47'. I really like it.

I checked the routing, they are correct. Thanks, Willie. Went for a 60 mile round trip this morning to a car show. The temp gauge never was out of the upper normal range. (About 70*-75* outside temp) The car runs better every time I drive it. I think she is about ready to go to the nationals.

I pulled the electric fan off, and rewired the fuel pump switch

I finally had time to do an update on One Bid. Is it Hot or is it Not?  Yes it was!

The final Chapter of “Is it Hot or Is it Not” Replaced the radiator and now One Bid is running cool just like it is supposed to.

I have a new Nick Name! A guy I have known for years saw a photo of “One bid” next to my computer desk at work. He then proceeded to call me “Two Tone Malone!” LoL

Ok, I haven’t posted in a while but I have been driving One Bid. Last week we went on Autumn Drive. (Basically it is a fall festival where you drive and stop at numerous locations for food, farms, antiques, crafts flea markets, etc. I did the unthinkable; I got stuck and got the new white wall tires dirty!
